How to unlock creativity in the workplace using technology

Creativity is one of the most valuable traits you can ask for in a employee. It unlocks ideas and introduces different ways of working which can all have a positive impact on the culture of your organisation.

There are many ways to get your employees’ creative juices flowing, but looking at your workplace and the technology contained within it, can be a great place to start.

We lead by example in our new 5000sq ft. WorkLife showroom in Manchester’s Neo. We have created lots of diverse areas within the space to give you an idea of how new technologies impact on the changing nature of work.
